Jamal Burke

WR | (6-0, 204, 4.52) | Boston College
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Redshirted in 1998. Split time in '99 and has started the past three years. Started every game in 2000 and '01 but missed time in '02 with a separated shoulder. Caught 11 passes for 250 yards and two touchdowns with a long of 50 in '99. Hauled in 26-386-3 with a long of 58 in 2000 and 25-320-8 with a long of 31 in '01. Was the team's No. 1 receiver and punt returner in '02, when he caught 33-498-3 with a long of 45 and returned 24 punts for 286 yards with a long of 83 and a touchdown.

Positives: Has good size and playing strength. Shifty, side-stepping type of runner who can make the first man miss. Can return punts. Has good hands, run vision and a quick burst of speed. Has improved concentration and work ethic.

Negatives: Still has some concentration lapses and is not a great route runner. Will struggle to get deep separation at times. Puts forth inconsistent effort as a blocker.

Summary: If he continues to improve his concentration, route running and blocking and shows he can cover kicks well, he will have a decent chance because he has some ability and can return punts.
